Too weak to carry on? - Lent 5

Have you ever been so tired that you struggled to get up in the morning? It is a strange feeling to be mentally awake, but to have your body ignore your 'get up' prompts. There are some of us who equally feel so emotionally drained that they can't even more - it is as if every thought takes all your energy! Is this perhaps what was happening in this scripture?

"Her princes are like starving deer searching for pasture.
They are too weak to run 
from the pursuing enemy." - Lamentations 1:6

The pursuing enemy could be a whole lot of different things for each one of us, but we all feel that something may be hounding us. If you feel you are too weak to run from the enemy, then allow the protection of God's Love to enfold you and sustain you. 

Let God be your strength.

"If what's ahead scares you,
And what's behind hurts you,
Just look above. He never fails to help you." - Unknown

Living in Grace
